As we approach the anniversary of Wilma I can't help but have my beliefs confirmed that Florida does not get hit by as many hurricanes as the insurers would like us to believe. I believe that the insurance industry is unjustly charging ridiculous premiums and making astounding profits on the backs of hard working Floridians using these claims as justification. They group all of us together in Florida as the state that is most likely to be hit by a hurricane but my county (Brevard) is less likely to be hit by a hurricane than the state of South Carolina who's rates are considerably lower than the insurance premiums we pay. Where are those politicians that are trying to protect the consumer from these unfair rate charges? Is it time for an honest discussion or are we going to continue to let the insurance companies lie to us.

(Post moved to a more appropriate Forum. Note that while many might agree with you, this site is not really the most effective place for the type of discussion that you seek since at least part of the solution would be political and we don't go there on CFHC.)

I have no problems with my post being moved. I appreciate your website and have been a regular visitor for almost ten years.

I appreciate comments with regards to the "facts". I would still like to hear your take on the 8th Anniversary of Wilma, specifically whether predicting the weather and hurricanes in particular is a worthwhile endeavor. Seriously, would anyone have predicted we'd go eight years without a single hurricane? Is it that unusual?
